The engine and lower cradle must be lowered to gain access to the lower control arm bolts. You dont need to remove the engine and transmission to perform the control arm replacement but the lower cradle and the complete engine assembly does need to be lowered. Remove and loosen the necessary components to lower the engine assembly a few inches to gain access to the lower control arm bolts.
